years we've helped people take care of the things that matter most. join today. >>> as the white house continues its renewed public relations campaign to promote obama care, the number of americans signing up is on the rise. according to the kaiser family foundation, more than 243,000 have signed up for private coverage through the exchanges and more than 567,000 have been determined eligible for medicaid since the october 1st rollout. joining me now, congressman rosa delauro of connecticut and one of the white house democrats on the white house strike team promoting the health care law this month. thanks for joining us. >> thank you. delighted to be here. >> today's push is all about the success of medicaid expansion. 26 states and d.c. have taken advantage while 24 states all run by republicans or republican legislatures have declined the expansion. i also want to point out these stats the white house just released. if all 50 states were on board, 5.4 million uninsured americans could gain coverage. eight in ten of those would pay less than $100 a month, all of which would save state
